Next meetup with PyData Südwest (supported also by Königsweg) at SAS on 9 January 2020. The presenter will be Jeremy Tuloup. He will talk about Voilà, which is one of the latest additions to the Jupyter ecosystem and can be used to turn Jupyter notebooks into standalone web applications and dashboards. Built upon Jupyter standard protocols and file formats, Voilà works with any Jupyter kernel (C++, Python, Julia), making it a language-agnostic dashboarding system. Voilà also supports Jupyter interactive widgets, including the roundtrips to the kernel.
Jeremy will introduce Voilà and its execution model, as well as typical use cases for dashboard authors, and will then invite you to a workshop to set up an environment for Voilà. You will create the first Voilà dashboards, deploy the Voilà dashboard to Binder with mybinder.org, deploy to Heroku: Using the Heroku command-line tool, Using the Heroku extension for JupyterLab
At 6pm we will open the doors
You are invited to take a shuttle from Heidelberg Main Station at 5.25 pm to the venue in case you travel from outside of Heidelberg. We will serve pizza at 7.30 pm and cold drinks during the entire evening. If you have an interesting topic for a 20 minutes lightning talk, please feel free to contact us: firstname.lastname@example.org or Jan-Benedik Jagusch or jump to www.meetup.com, where Jan has already posted the event.
